Sportiello and his teammates, including the Dutchmen Hans Hateboer and Marten de Roon, have been quarantined as a precaution. “This isolation will be over next Friday,” said the club management.
Sportiello is the fifteenth carrier of the dreaded virus in Serie A. Bergamo is the province with the most corona infections in severely affected Italy (6728).
According to the mayor of the city of Bergamo, the Champions League match between Atalanta and Valencia on February 19 in Milan played a role in the high contamination rate. “It was very busy in the stadium and afterwards in the catering industry. That evening there was definitely a strong escalation of people who got infected. ”
Sportiello was on the bench during that game. Valencia announced last week that since the trip to Italy, more than a third of the players and support staff have tested positive for the dreaded lung virus.
